I have a cheeky question...

I have a Vodafone SIM

I know that the number is live and I can use

But... how long can you use for?

I just wanted to keep for emergency usage and nothing else.


I know from experience that numbers DO GET expired - even if you turn on every now and then


I was hoping someone onf Giffgaff might have the answer  Smiley Happy

Last I heard it was 180 days of no activity, (one of the networks used to send you a text at this point giving you a further 90 days and if there was still no activity by the end of that 90 days then they'd disconnect the SIM card - this was either Vodafone or O2 I don't remember which, and I don't know if the additional time is still allowed so budget 180 days).
